The Niagara Daredevil Exhibit is conveniently located next to the Niagara IMAX Theatre. Enter and see and touch the actual barrels that challenged the Falls!

this attraction offers many stories about the pioneers who tried to use various methods to 'ride the falls'. a story or two relates how others were rescued from a precarious ending when caught in the wrath of the rapids toward the falls

Saw this museum on the tv show Mysteries At The Museum. Wanted to see it for myself and was not disappointed. Located in the IMAX building. Free parking the day I was there.

This is not a priority to visit but it is inexpensive and it IS interesting. You can see the whole exhibit in 30 minutes if you have some time to kill.

Yes, you can see the museum separately. The movie does give you a good background of the pieces in the museum though.
